Aranmula Kannadi:Legend of Aranmula kanadi

Aranmula kannadi :Not made of glass :Only one family knows its secret procedure and metallurgy !

Aranmula kannadi is special type of mirror produced at Aranmula, a village in the state of Kerala in India.

 

Aranmula Kannadi:Legend of Aranmula kanadi :Picture images of aranmulakannadiThis unique metal mirror of Aranmula, reflects a rich cultural as well as metallurgical tradition of a golden past in the history of Kerala. The British Museum in London has an eighteen inch tall Aranmula Metal Mirror in its collection. The origins of metal mirrors of Aranmula are linked with the Aranmula Parthasarathy Temple. Legend has it that eight families of experts in temple arts and crafts were brought by the royal chief to Aranmula from Tirunelveli district to work in the Parthasarathy temple centuries ago. There are only a few families in the world who practice the art of making Metal Mirrors. Some undisclosed metals are alloyed with copper and tin to cast the Metal Mirror. To achieve their highly reflective surface polishing the mirrors can go on for a day or two.

The major differences between an Aranmula kannadi and a normal mirror are:

  • The Aranmula kannadi is not created from glass but from a special metal alloy.
  • It is a front surface reflection mirror with negligible flaws when compared to other back surface reflection mirrors. The procedure and metallurgy is only known to a single family at Aranmula.
